Not in FP&A but I feel like the worst part is being wrong about your forecasts but that’s part of the job

Don’t do it you’d probably make more money in public accounting as you move up

I think if you’re on the corporate consolidations FP&A team youre probably more safe since there always has to be someone at the top combining information and managing in aggregate. From what I’ve heard before I joined my company there were layoffs that happened in the strategic groups not reporting groups (FP&A, accounting)
